Okay I checked on my raspberry wine this evening. The SG is a .990 but it hass a lot of active bubbles coming up and the air lock is moving like crazy. The one gallon that I had extra has a SG of 1.030 and has no bubbles. IS it time to rerack these into clean containers off the lees?
I have seen fermentations go lower then .990 but to be that active at that SG cant be. It must be C02 being released and the small jug must not have received too much of the yeast that was still active IMO. Probably a good time to rack and maybe whats left in the small jug might activate and finish off that way.
